Morning Dew, Alligator-> Drums-> Alligator, Hard To Handle, Good Morning Little School Girl, Dark Star, Saint Stephen-> The Eleven-> Turn On Your Love Light
This is a SBD from a bootleg CD with unknown generations. There is a significant hiss and no noise reduction was performed. The songs were retracked before shn encoding. Deadbase lists Morning Dew and Alligator before Hard to Handle, though this information is uncertain. There is a splice near the beginning of The Eleven.

Whats wrong with this?
Sure, this ain't got nothin' on the Fillmore run, but that doesn't mean it's not worth having. Very interesting Dark Star, nice Eleven and Lovelight too. But the first ever Hard To Handle is indeed a mess...

The GRATEFUL DEAD "Live" March 15, 1969 at the Hilton Hotel, San Francisco, California U.S.A.
I highly recommend this show for your 1969 GRATEFUL DEAD Collection. "A Must Have" show.
5 Star mix
4 Star recording
5 Star performance
I recommend using your equalizer for almost all the "live" shows of the GRATEFUL DEAD on the Internet Archive, including this one.
This is a "MUST HAVE" DARK STAR. Garcia's sound is alive. From PP to FF (very soft to very loud)this arrangement is one of a kind. Jerry is playing his Gibson SG, from "LIVE DEAD".
"LIVE DEAD" Set list/arrangement, DARK STAR into ST. STEPHEN into THE ELEVEN into TURN ON YOUR LOVELIGHT.
Get it while you can, get it while it's free, get it now or you will be sorry.
Eat, Drink, be Merry and Listen to the GRATEFUL DEAD.
Thanks for the Love from the B&W Ball.

The Black & White Ball (http://www.bwball.com) is a fundraiser for the San Francisco Symphony. It is, as the name implies, a "white tie and black dress" affair. So yes, it is a "high society" event. It is now held biennially, but may have been an annual event previously. I had heard that the Dead had played a B&W Ball, and seem to remember reading a short newspaper article about it, but hadn't seen anything of the show before this.

Black & White Ball
I was a little too young at the time . . . but if memory serves me well, the BW Ball was a high society (no pun intended) series of events that took place on an annual basis. There were multiple concerts around SF, focusing on opera, symphony, etc. but they began to include some rock and roll acts also. I don't think the Dead ever got invited back . . .

Black & White Ball, Indeed.
According to Vol III of Deadbase, this was the Black & White Ball. Anyone know what that was supposed to be about? And yes, first Hard to Handle.
According to Deadbase, first set is only partially represented here, missing Dew > Gator > drums > gator before Hard to Handle. But what is here is really hard to complain about.

Great show. It is always a real pleasure to hear a set or part of a set with these tunes. And it is equally enjoyable to hear Pig Pen on vocals and organ.
Thank you for taking the time to convert this recording to an Internet media!
